West Jordan, Utah, United States
Started playing in1971.
Finished 3rd in the 1973 Provo Open behind GM Walter Brown 1st, Master Roy Irvin 2nd. I had a win against (Expert 2084) Jeremy Silman in the final round with a score of 6 1/2 - 1 1/2. April 28, 1973
I was Utah co-champion in 1977.
In the final round of the 1984 National Open, I had the privilege of playing GM Larry Christiansen. He won of course!
As hard as I worked on my game, I could not seem to break the USCF 2000 rating.
I quit playing in 1985 and have not played in over 26 years.
Since I am now retired, my son convinced me to give Chess.com a try.
Even though I dislike Blitz chess, I will play it now and then. I really suck at anything fast paced.
